Nottingham East MP Chris Leslie has quit the Labour Party.
Leslie shared his reasons for leaving the party at a press conference this morning:
He said: “There is an ‘appalling culture’ of closing down debate in Labour – on and offline – on antisemitism.
“Enough is enough, there must be a better way forward, and there can be a better way forward.”
Leslie went on to accuse Corbyn of acting in ‘betrayal’ on Europe by enabling Brexit and holding back from allowing the public a final say.
UK MPs Chuka Umunna, Luciana Berger, Angela Smith, Mike Gapes, Gavin Shuker and Ann Coffey have also quit the party.
